Artist Statement //
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with making art. When I was little, I’d doodle at my grandmother’s and press too hard on the paper, making impressions all over her teak dining table. Though the first time I moved from paper to a screen, I knew immediately that one day I’d be a digital artist.
My work is rooted in a passion for communicating ideas, stories, and journeys. I like to build brands and identities. But most of all, I aim to make connections—connections with people I may never meet. If my work has simply compelled someone to think, feel, or take action, then I have succeeded; whether the viewer is in my room, or halfway across the world. In the end, I took my passion for a hobby and turned it into a career.
And if you look closely, you can still see those impressions.
